Roger W. Garret
Certified Behavioral Consultant
Dr. Roger W. Garret Welcome to Udemy. I am Dr. Roger Garret, a Certified Behavioral Consultant and Trainer who works with Fortune 500 Companies and numerous other organizations. I make it a point to ask those I work with, “What Business Are You In?” Invariably they tell me about the product they sell. I believe people need to know that first and foremost we are all in the people business. When we lose sight of this, we find that we aren’t in business for very long.
I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois, where I was also a member of the varsity Fencing Team. I became an N.C.A.A. All American my senior year and was also a member of the U.S. Olympic Squad in fencing. While at Illinois I had the pleasure of coaching our first Paralympic Gold Medalist in fencing.
After graduating I coached the fencing team at Illinois before going on to work at several universities in Student Personnel Services. While serving as Director of Student Programs and Service and Assistant Dean of Students at Florida Atlantic University, I completed my Master Degree in Counseling and Psych Services.
After leaving the University, I joined Technicolor as their National Director of Sales and Fund Raising. It was in this capacity that I traveled the country and trained more than a 100,000 sales folks to sell our film, which was private labeled for Technicolor. We did such a good job that Technicolor sold our division.
After Technicolor, I returned to teaching at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, where I was curriculum coordinator and taught courses in Counseling, Gerontology and Therapeutic Recreation.
While at GSU I pursued my doctoral studies at the University of Georgia, where I received my Doctorate (Ed.D.) in Counseling, Communications Training & Therapeutic Recreation. My dissertation was a Systematic Helping Skills Approach to training Counselors.
It was at this time that I started work on designing and developing the proprietary KEYS Behavior Style Assessment. My KEYS Program utilizes an innovative approach to personal coaching that encourages team building and the meeting of interpersonal goals and objectives.
My focus is on soft skills training and helping people acquire the skills they need to get and keep a job. Research shows that 85% of your success will be based on your people skills and only 15% on your technical knowledge.
I have published several books including Who Moved My KEYS (An overview of the KEYS System) and several books on prayer (all of which are available through KEYS Publishing.)
I look forward to meeting you as we explore the KEYS System.
